In the Lexington Central Kentucky Area What's Better: Firepit or Outdoor Fireplace?
While a fireplace in the right location can be striking and eye catching, the firepit, being round, gives people the ability to look across at each other and its open design also provides the ability to roast hot dogs, toast marshmallows and make those s'mores that all of us in the Lexington Kentucky area love. Fireplaces make it a little harder to achieve these things since they are designed for looks more than function. Fireplaces also tend to force people to look one direction to see the fire, forcing them to choose to look at the fire or one another. A fire pit, with its 360-degree view, allows people to be able to do both at the same time. Maybe even see the reflection of the fire in the eyes of your significant other...
Perhaps you’re wanting a fireplace to fill an area of your patio that seems bare? You can achieve the same idea with a well-constructed sitting wall that wraps around the fire pit and still gives you enough room for people to sit in chairs between the fire pit and wall with plenty of room to spare.
We like a fire pit better than a fireplace in the Lexington area because the open design allows you to see the fire and each other, roast those dogs, and make those delicious s'mores a whole lot easier than a fireplace, and can be custom built to be just as eye catching.
So, if you live in the Central Kentucky, and are looking to build a gathering place for friends and family then let us help you with a custom designed patio and fire pit.
If you disagree with us and want a fireplace instead…don’t worry we build those too.
